    Featuring a charmingly bookish and clueless hero and a clueless in her own way heroine, The Lieutenant s Bargain is full of Regina Jennings s trademark humor Even better is the character transformation as Jack gains the last bit of confidence he needs and Hattie opens her heart to see beauty and worth where she never had before I adored this novel and highly recommend it.

    I fell in love with Fort Reno the minute I started reading this series Regina crafted this beautiful place that was so hard to leave when the story was done I might ve read this one sitting The characters were so stinkin lovable and just so great From the main characters to the secondary characters I was instantly in love with them all Though they were all so different they created a wonderful family aspect.This book had a mixture of some of my favorite thingsaccidental marriage an I fell in love with Fort Reno the minute I started reading this series Regina crafted this beautiful place that was so hard to leave when the story was done I might ve read this one sitting The characters were so stinkin lovable and just so great From the main characters to the secondary characters I was instantly in love with them all Though they were all so different they created a wonderful family aspect.This book had a mixture of some of my favorite thingsaccidental marriage and second hand embarrassment The second hand embarrassment was definitely BECAUSE of the forced accidental marriage The main characters grew up in the same town as kids, then lost touch for quite a few years There might have been an old crush that was rekindled when they saw each other again It was so fun watching them get to know each other as adults and see all their previous kid impressions change.Jack and Hattie were such opposites, but ended up being the perfect fit Jack was so gentle, sweet and patient He had a subtle confidence, but it was never overbearing or arrogant I really loved his character and how he interacted with everyone He was the same person with the Major and the Indians, he never changed or wavered I also REALLY loved that JACK was the bookworm.Hattie was the one who really changed throughout the story She went from this naive, pampered gentlewoman to a strong independent woman She was spunky and strong, but in a quite way.Regina does an amazing job at writing characters who truly change and mature throughout the story This book was no different, and it was done beautifully I really really really love Fort Reno and it s soldiers I cannot wait to visit again.I rated this a 4 5 stars I received this book from the author for an honest review All opinions are my own
